^ It's been uploaded as "Stranger than Paradise" recently, and apparently subtitles for ep 1 has been released too. :) I hope people give this show a chance since it's like the opposite of popular right now. But I adore it, so far up to ep 7. I didn't like episode 1 but since ep 2 I've really warmin...

Stranger Than Heaven (SBS, 2006) with Eom Tae Woong

My favorite Kdrama airing right now and, imo, the best one airing right now. Eom Tae Woong (Ressurection) plays an ordinary Joe Shmoe and a small time gangster. Lee Seong Jae (Public Enemy, Barking Dogs Never Bite) is a Canadian lawyer down on his luck, who was adopted from Korea at the age of 2. Ki...

Your post is invalid bull c-n. That's why it's difficult taking you for more than a troll.

my point was is the film making intending to stir ANTI DOKDO JAPAN feelings or ANTI JAPAN feelings? You have a long explanations explaining your view.

Does the movie make the distinction, or are you making the distinction? It seems you are much more in tune with the distinction that the person making the movie cared to be. if you need to really deeply analyze something for a long long time and get passed the surface designation to know what it is...

A useful analogy for the political situatoin among the east asian nations is one of houses on a street in suburbia and one of the neighbors throwing **** at the others' doors. It doesn't matter if not all members of the offending household were involved, and it's easy to see why it would be difficul...

Re: Is Jeon Ji Hyun Chinese?

Although it was the Goryeo royal family name, Wang is very rare today. It is said that when Goryeo fell, people called Wang changed their surname to avoid severe persecution from the succeeding Joseon Dynasty. The Kaesong Wang lineage traces its ancestry to the Goryeo rulers. Those Wangs changed th...

I'm not too fond of this drama, though I think KHS looks pretty. This show can make fans for LDG and the other guy but that's about it. The scenes in Switzerland are pretty.

I've watched 4 episodes but I won't be watching any more.

Koga1, there's no competition going on here. There's no need to think in terms of "them" "they" "us" "we", which is seems very shallow. I can refer you to a lot of K dramas that don't cater to the "housewives", and making a drama based on writers outside of one's country - as long as it's good- isn'...

Soulmate is anything but boring. This week's episode (ep 10) was awesome.. I still don't know how many episodes this show is going for but it looks like it's coming to a close soon. A few reasons why this show is really cool: 1) Besides the awesome soundtrack, all the characters are their own. Hong ...
